Report: Monsey stabbing suspect kicked out of boot camp

Grafton Thomas, the man charged with stabbing five people during a Hanukkah celebration in Monsey, New York, this past Saturday began boot camp to enter the US Marine Corps but was separated from the service a month later for "fraudulent enlistment," military officials said Tuesday, according to The Associated Press.

A Marine Corps spokeswoman would not provide details on why Thomas left the Marines as a recruit in late 2002, about a month after he started training.
